2 hours including interval

Noam ‘Nani’ Vazana is an acclaimed international singer, composer, pianist and trombonist. Nani brings a breath of fresh air into the jazz and world landscape. Her hypnotising vocals, often compared to Mercedes Sosa and Nina Simone, and her timeless compositions, connect the ancient Ladino culture to our modern lives today. They create a unique blend of Middle Eastern music, North African beats and Nani’s own composed Ethnic-Jazz songs. With her trio, the sound world of fiery Spanish guitar and vibrant percussion is infused with the rhythm of the marketplace, the melodies of joy and heartbreak, and the stories of a people who left behind their homeland.

The trio will be performing music from Nani's new album Ke Haber, the first album of entirely original Ladino music.
